A beautiful hotel, with a nice pool, although we never got to use it, as we were in the city too much. Convenient for airport travels, but not the best location if you want to do things in the city. Dinner was very pricey though (seems to be a common thing in Mumbai)

7. Paparazzi - Being constantly stared at and frequently photographed (often without consent).
8. Chai - The sweet spiced milk tea is available everywhere. Men and boys walk around with a thermos selling it for 10INR on the train, beach, side of the road, everywhere! Chai garam, chai!

... the scenery on the drive to Munnar was simply stunning and with warm temperature but cool breeze in our face the whole thing just was lovely. Munnar itself is a place built around tea (quite literally). The whole place was originally singularly concerned with the manufacture of tea and hence it is surrounded on all sides by miles of gorgeous tea plantations. We stayed in a great little hotel that had free coffee and a ...
